How do you say 'Good Question' in Japanese?

Don't think this has been posted before.  Here's some fanart from a Japanese JLU fan.

Oh, that Booster Gold! Thanks for sharing!

Speaking of art, where'd your avatar come from, Xenos?

Crap, I used to know how to say that...I think it's "ii Shitsumon", which would literally be "good (quality) question".


The world spins mad. The people are so intoxicated by luxury they forget everything that makes us more than house pets. Reason. Truth. Justice. Freedom. The human spirit is a shattered pane of glass – wrapped in soft velvet and soaked in sugary poison.

Ii Shitsumon is correct.  You could say yoi shitsumon if you felt like being really polite.  You could also say omoushiroi shitsumon, which means 'interesting question.'

JLU Q?'s infamous "That...is the question." translates as "Sore ga...shitsumon desu." Or "Sore ga...shitsumon da yo," if Q doesn't want to be polite.

Someone at Something Awful had the last panel of the first one as his avatar, I always wondered where it came from. I'd like to use it myself sometime.

And that second one is just classy.
